Day #2

That means it is time for the next peek at the 2nd My Timeless Template © (template will be released Aug. 15th!)

Thank you for sharing the excitement of yesterday’s template peek too!

I am very excited about this next one as well, and I hope you will be too!

This new template is called Tucked Away © and will also include the Pretty Petite version! ( LOVE the Petite size!)

Enchanting Elegance


This is the standard size version of the template.

About Tucked Away ©

Now it is about time we had a perfectly cute box to “tuck away” so many treasures, be them gifts like homemade candy, treats or everyday items. But, the name doesn’t come from its adorable convenience, it comes from the front flap closure, which has a perfect little tab, that tucks into the bottom, keeping it closed.


It is simply un-tucked to reveal the little treasure you put inside.

 That same flap really adds to the design possibilities for this box . You will love to “tuck away” so many treatlets in this template! It also has a layering decorative panel to make design ideas endless!

Now by printing the front portion of the template in one color, then the lid/flap closure in a patterned paper or another color you get a dual colored design, that is EASY to achieve, weather you add additional layers or NOT! You choose how simple or complex your design becomes! Another great thing! No matter WHAT your creative style YOU get to personalize these templates to YOUR style or occasion! Love that 😀

The KEY to the My Timeless Templates © is in the name-Timeless!

Each template goes together quickly and is made to be put together as easily as possible. My goal is to make gift packaging EASY, but with a WOW! I think this template certainly does that.

Now about today’s sample……


I am just in LOVE with White,  Smokey Shadow, and Enchanted Evening with touches of Ripe Avocado! LOVE I tell you 😀

As you can see this is a very SIMPLE version of the template. I can see this as Wedding Favors all over the world, in choice of colors 😀 It is just such an elegant design!


Yes, this stamp was the CHA exclusive (sorry! I couldn’t help but use it :C) Floral Fusion.

BUT! Don’t despair if you don’t have it! I feel that Out on a Limb is just as FAB (and readily available for purchase) as an alternate, and could achieve the same simple elegance, OR you could also substitute Beautiful Blooms, With Sympathy, or Sprial Bouquet😀 Heck, for a total wedding look you could even use another fave of mine: Piece of Cake!


I added a layered butterfly-the large one done in vellum, and the smaller done in Enchanted Evening.

Both are Punches-large by EK Success and smaller by Martha Stewart

The bow was simply tied, with an Enchanted button, to which I added an adhesive rhinestone to the center


Now trust me, this box doesn’t NEED a fancy schmancy handle, but boy it did ADD to the beauty of it 😀

I used a paint can handle (I got it from a purchased paint can!) and a filigree metal flower (from SU!) to dress up the site of insertion 😀 Easy Peasy! The TUCK IN style of the lid allows the handle to be used and for it to stay CLOSED! Love that too.

Here is a Pretty Petite version of Tucked Away ©

NOTE: I almost didn’t share this gift, as it is PERSONAL! Since MANY of my reader’s are pet lover’s, I figured it may help someone know what to do for someone during a difficult time like this.

Paw-prints on your heart


With Sympathy and Loss of a Pet was absolutely PERFECT!

One of my best friends lost her dog Bailey. She was just shy of 15 years old. Unless you have loved a pet like that, you cannot imagine the loss. I thought it would be nice to do something for my dear friend to let her know I hurt for her and her family, so I used the Pretty Petite version of the template to hold something special.


On the design I used some epoxy heart stickers for the “blooms”. The mat layer is made from Shimmery White cardstock

I knew they were having her cremated.  As soon as I heard, I ran out to Things Remembered (a favorite store of mine when you want an engraved gift! I spend a LOT of $ there! LOL!) and purchased a placard engraved with their dog Bailey’s name, and the date, so they could put it with her ashes.


This placard is adhesive, so it should be easily attached.

It is just something simple and understated, but totally from the heart.

I think she liked it.
